At the beginning of this month, I got the great news that I have received the Microsoft MVP award in the category Azure!
I was visiting Scotland at the time I got the email. I was there to speak at the Scottish Summit in Glasgow. After the event, my husband and I drove up north and had just arrived at our first stop when the email arrived. We went out for diner to celebrate that night and enjoyed a beautiful week in the Scottish nature to let it all sink in.
Fortunately, I have received the award just in time to be a part of the Global MVPSummit this year. Because of the current situation, it is an online event this year. While the reason is sad and I would have loved to meet the other MVPs, it is great to see a completely new kind of event being developed and participate in this adventure.
I could not have done this on my own. I have had some great support, both professionally as personally. A lot of people offered and gave me their help and guidance and I want to thank those people, they know who they are.
At this point, you can find a lot of my previous activities on my MVP profile. For the future, I am looking forward to continue to write blog posts and speak at events (virtual or IRL). I have some fun PowerShell projects I want to spend time on, I’m working on an Azure DevOps extension and am still busy with cleaning up all the Azure PowerShell Function Apps I created for the 25 days of serverless. So lot’s of fun is coming up!
If you are searching for a specific subject you would like me to write a blog about or if you are looking for a speaker for your user group or event, reach out to me on Twitter or in the comments.
Would be great hearing the journey you’ve taken to becoming MVP. Like how one becomes a MVP
I will think about that, might be a nice blog post for the future!
Congratulations on becoming an MVP, Barbara!
Thank you Peter!
